a question posed earlier. >> why >> cutting edge of science often involves ideas that you can't can't wrap your mind around them. >> where people see legos this researcher sees a building block of science, his team at university mission bay campus used piles of them to construct their own working lego microscopes. >> it is two lenses. first one is objective. it's here. >> he says they did need special parts in the 3 d printer. a kind of computerized easy bake oven that can make useful items. >> the results? a working device built to answer questions. except one you may be asking now. why build a microscope out of legos? answer is a new program that is designed to change the way scientists think about their work. the director says one goal is to make projects more practical. >> and having work together. in way of brin storming them. it's bringing new dimension to the way it can be done. >> the team was tasked with reimaging uses for a scope development at the university of california. createors envisioned it was as a way of diagnosing diseases but it has yet to be commercialized. scott patt

with a science-type -- as somebody with a science-type background i took offense at that. i would challenge him to show us the linkage, the undeniable linkage between drought and change of weather and some kind of human activity. >> it's not like you're an m.i.t. graduate. oh, wait, you are. i think it was a message, not to congress but to whoever will be running the e.p.a. for the president. i don't see any of that language passing through the house and so it'll be via rule and reg, executive order potentially through the white house. the m.i.t. grad does bring up the science today as we sit on the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, i find it amazing that the unmistakable scientific and biological evidence of the humanity of a -- an unborn child is denied by the white house while we have this debate over other science as well. >> clear think the administration likes to use regulatory agencies as a bludgeon to play to his constituencies. if the leadership wants to make sure i would vote for this debt ceiling increase, they could achieve the rains act to it, which my predecessor geoff davis got pa
are looking at fourth and eighth graders, fourth graders in reading and mathematics and science and eight the greatest in mathematics and science. >host: we have special number set up if you want to join this conversation -- what do we learn as we dig into help fourth graders and eighth graders are doing? guest: the broad strokes over view, we see that our fourth graders, they're reading has improved as well as mathematics but their silence is largely not changed compared to the previous administration. over the longer term, they have improved and their eight th graders have not improved much. in general, the assessments compare the u.s. to a variety of countries and education systems within countries. some of our state's took the assessment independently along with the u.s. total. when you look over the entire set, i would say the u.s. among these countries shows up in the top 10 or 12 countries or systems. host: we can see who was included in the fourth grade reading study. why these countries? guest: they are given the same tests so much of the efforts in an international asset as maki
our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging firesser and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> michael: but will policy follow words this time? will mitigating the effects of climate change be a hallmark of president obama's second term? he did say climate change. joining me now to discuss the progressives reaction to president obama's speech is donny fowler, uea graduate. he runs his own political firm here. donny as always great to have you back inside "the war room." before we get into the nitty-gritty, what did you think of the president's speech. >> it was great. president obama has learned a lot of lessons about being in washington, d.c. you have to stand up, say what you want and fight hard for it. you can't sit back and wait for them to come to you. >> michael: i hear and i agree. i thought it was fantastic speech. >> it wasn't a liberal speech. we'll tax any estates over $1 million. we're going to put a carbon tax on any carbon. we're going to legalized drug

to rebuild it that way. this is the last part, from the science perspective. here's my ask. who's making the decisions about where we build, how we build? and if in a summit with the united states you're going to think it's the federal government. no. some of you might think it's the state government. not really. where do these decisions get made? local officials. whether their city or county commissions, land-use planning board. this is where the decisions are made every day wear, added up, the risk exposure occurs, but on a day-to-day translational basis you probably don't see this. but this is where decisions are made about where we build, how we build, types of building codes were going to enforce. right? yet many of these officials under tremendous pressure, particularly on the downturn that generate revenue how well the generate revenue? jobs and growth. have you ever seen anybody running for office thing i want our community to get smaller? it's always jobs and growth. that's like a mantra. that's how we go tax bases. they're having to make decisions that oftentimes our short-term

of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> the new york times reports the obama administration will tackle climate change this term by avoiding broad, far-reaching and birds through congress and instead focusing on administrative actions. these include reducing power plant emissions, increasing the efficiency of home appliances, and reducing the federal government's carbon footprint. although the white house is planning a campaign to build public support, environmentalist have been warned not to expect "full-scale engagement" what congress is preoccupied with other issues including gun control, immigration, and the federal budget. we'll have more from president obama's second inauguration after the headlines. algeria has confirmed the death toll from its recent hostage crisis and a southern gas field saying 37 foreigners and 11 workers lost their lives. the dead included three americans. the attackers came from algeria and neighboring mali as well as several foreign countries, including egypt and canada. algerian tr
sports and all society have to reckon with at some point is the fact that the technology and science are going to raise these questions over and over again as we go forward. because it's not totally clear where you start -- where you draw the lines. right now we think tommy johns surgery is okay, even though you come back with a stronger arm than you had before. that's a medical enhancement. that's not something that's part of your natural gift. that's something that you earned. at some point we'll have laser surgery that will allow them to see better. is that a drug? is that something you should be allowed to have or not? people will be able to do things scientifically, technologically to their bodies to make them better performers without any effort. so where do the lines get drawn? how do we figure out how to cope with the march of science? >> like a futurologist. >> last month bartolo colon, came back from a 93 miles an hour. >> that's okay but hgh isn't. again, where do the lines get drawn? >> the reason i'm here today is because i had my blood spun last night. >> juicing. >> i'

that fault zones are dangerous places to live but thanks to science we have increased more than two orders of nag any attitude the safety of living in earthquake country. that fact was demonstrated by the different experiences in death and destruction in haiti where earthquake resilientcy is nonexistent and chile that took its playbook from california. that's why i'm optimistic that science and engineering cals make the coastle zone a safer place to live. there are important differences between the problem of earthquake hazards and coastal hazards. if we put aside those umph bumper stick thears say stop plate tectonics. huges have an effect on the rate -- humans have the an effect on the rate and the intensity of earthquakes. on the other hand, we have increased coastal hazards by increasing the rate of wetland loss anbar yur island erosion and sea level rise. what this means in addressing coastal hazards we need to confront both mother nature and the enhanced risk from impacts. i would argue the philosophy we have to approach this with is exactly the same. scientists can make recommendati

[ applause ] the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background checks. over the last 14 years, that's kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that's not safe. that's not smart. that's not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun, whether it's from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sen
